If you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) – a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste (anosmia) – the advice is to stay at home for 10 days. All members of this household should remain at home for 14 days.

If you think you have symptoms, please do not attend your hospital appointment until you are advised it is safe to do so. Please contact us to rearrange your appointment, or to re-organise treatment and tests.

Take a break

We are committed to ensuring that all staff take their breaks. 

If you work more than six hours in one stretch you are entitled to a rest break of 20 minutes through the Working Time Regulations.

Rest breaks can include tea breaks, lunch breaks or other short breaks during the day. It is not just because of the regulations that breaks are important, it's because they are good for you too.

Taking a break gives you a chance to take a breather, replenish your energy levels by eating or having a drink, physically resting or taking a mental break.
